Memphis Animal Services: Dog Field Trip/Short-Term Fostering Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

This grant enabled us to replenish our Foster Field Trip supplies, such as our attention-getting royal blue harnesses with our logo and ADOPT ME! on them, and some very affordable kits of harnesses, collars, and leashes.

We have been dealing with a distemper outbreak, so field trips have been on hold, but we are now in the recovery phase and ready to start field trips up again!

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Lady is an adorable fawn-colored pit bull-type dog who was at MAS with no interest for five weeks before going on a field trip on May 5, 2023.

Her field-trip chaperone sent us some great photos (including one of Lady wearing a Petfinder Foundation-funded ADOPT ME vest) and a bio. We posted them on social media, and Lady was adopted within the week! Those photos from that field trip are included here.
